As the air travel industry continues to grow, customers are always looking for more direct flights, or at least ones with better connections. As a result, airlines release new flight routes to boost revenue and help travellers connect to more destinations than ever before.

Carriers such as Delta, Air France, United, American Airlines, British Airways and others will open up new non-stop flights to countries all over the world. Here are the new flight routes we’re looking forward to in 2019.

To Asia

March 2019: Japan Airlines offers non-stop flights between Tokyo and Seattle. Partner airlines including Delta and All Nippon Airways will also fly non-stop to/from Seattle and Tokyo.

April 2019: Cathay Pacific opens non-stop routes from Hong Kong and Seattle, four times a week. Additionally, Korean Air will offer non-stop flights between Boston and Seoul.

July 2019: Delta begins non-stop flights to/from Atlanta to Shanghai. The airline attempted this same flight route twice before, but was not profitable. Now, Delta believes it will be successful—third time’s a charm!
